Ideas For A Dog Holiday in Staffordshire

It may not be the most renowned destination for a romantic retreat or a group stay looking for lots of fun. However, it does fly under the radar and some of the Staffordshire holiday cottages are not only comfortable and cosy but have plenty of activities and attractions going on near them.

Some of the most popular days out when booking a cottage in Staffordshire include Dimmingsdale Forest with miles of woodland walks, Silverdale Country Park with cycling routes and the River Trent is always worth visiting for a stroll along the waterside.

Alton Towers is another option nearby, great for families and kids but unfortunately, dogs are not welcome unless they are guide dogs. So they would have to stay in the cottages or log cabins. If you want to explore a city, Stoke-on-Trent is in a great location with a range of shops, cafes and restaurants. To the south, you can visit Warwickshire and Worcestershire, whilst to the North, the Peak District National Park is a must!

Where Is Stafford

Staffordshire is a landlocked county. Tucked away in the heart of the West Midlands. It may not be as popular as somewhere like Scotland, Cornwall or North Wales but it does offer visitors the perfect opportunity to explore other parts of the UK. Staffordshire dog friendly cottages are perfect for couples and families looking for an exciting time together. Staffordshire is well known for its beautiful villages and charming towns. Enjoy fishing, hiking, and cycling. Your dog will enjoy the open spaces in this fantastic part of the UK. 

Cheap Weekend Breaks

Staffordshire has something for everyone. Even those on a tight budget. You will have plenty of dog friendly accommodation in Staffordshire to choose from. Even if it just for a relaxing weekend away. Not everyone has too much time to spend away from home or work and a short break is sometimes all that is needed. You can sometimes find deals and a good price for bookings here as it’s one of the lesser-known destinations for cottage and cabin holidays.

1-2 Night Self Catering

Short self-catering stays in holiday homes are the perfect way to experience a local way of life. Shop at local markets and mingle with residents at pubs and eateries. One or two night stays in any of the many dog friendly places to stay in Staffordshire are the perfect getaway.

Last Word

Plan your days and when to go to the theme parks if that’s your thing. There is so much to see and do, you’ll want to make sure you use your time there wisely.

What we really love about Staffordshire is that it’s a county full to the brim with just about everything you could want from any kind of holiday. There’s market town destinations, theme parks such as Alton Towers and Drayton Manor, brilliant Staffordshire countryside and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (such as the Shropshire Hills), and even tons of history in the form of the legacy of Rudyard Kipling.

There are rollercoasters, tropical aqua parks and all year round snow slopes. Visit ancient churches, medieval castles, and grand stately homes.

Staffordshire really is the heart of England for many people, and we really understand why. For dogs and their owners as well as families looking for quick breaks in a charming holiday destination, Staffordshire more or less has it all. You’ll be hard pushed to get bored around here, regardless of the property type on offer and whether or not you’re a fan of roller coasters or long walks.
